There is no ligic in an army, deprived of the most basic equipment any army should have.
So, my most intelligent better than-me friend, do care to explain, how a slender subtile woman can pick up a 5-6 kilo crate of hand grenades up to
her chest (which the retreating tank crew MAGICALLY decided not to take, seeing that grenades in your logic, are not a weapon to be used on a crouding
enemy, when you are trying to run away from a crowd) with one hand?
And do give us an inside on your military experience, oh brave internet warrior and how all green crates are dangerous and all bearded men - Russians.
I would like to hear about it. We all would, since you mentioned it. Come on.
The assumption that those may be army rations stems from the fact, that the army of Ukraine is low on food supplies and the military infrastructure
has been crumbling for years, so when loadind up numerous armored and non-armored vehicles, you do not hold a bunch of food, water and first-aid kits
on a rat and mouse infested supply point(as I said, the infrastructure is crumbling, and rats have a way of infesting places like that and rats have a
way of finding the slightest traces of food). You put them in crates and when it's time to resupply the vehicles, you don't compose each and every
package. Neitherdso you check every bag or carton box(which is, of course, the easy way to do it) , whether the rats got to it or not. You just take a
sealed ready-to go crate, check it's integrity and load it. This saves you a hell of a lot of time. And I did mention that the army is low on MRE's.
Now meds and rations are lightweight, while the water, which any supply load would also contain, would probably be taken our, because it's quite hot
in an APC and you'd want to drink in a matter of hours. You have been insede an APC, oh brave internet warrior, haven't you?
As for grenades. Imagine, you have pissed off a lot of people on a national holiday, shot at them, killed some, scared them to death on your fast
armored and armed tank...and then it breaks down...and you have to get out of, basically, an enemy city with 3-7 of your guys (most likely, 3, because
it was basically, a terror raid. they were not planning to capture any buildings), now would you take the grenades with you? Any fool would. We've
already seen a number of single Ukraine troops holding prenades above their heads, saying they'll blow themselves up, when surrounded by a croud. And
the croud stood down, when they did so. Effective, capiche?
The box was either empty or contained something unimportant. If it had ammo in there, she wouldn't be able to lift in with one hand. She's a a thin
It cannot contain hand grenades, because any fool, trying to leave hostile territory would take everything that would enable him to do so. Especially
hand grenades, which are, oh brave internet warrior, used for the purpose of suppressing the attacking enemy. If you didn't know that...
